Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
MONQ Diffusers are not intended for individuals under 18.
We’re so excited for you to try our newest product! Each MONQ R contains a reusable diffuser, and 3 Blend PODs that screw on and off of the diffuser. Similar to our original MONQ, to use the MONQ R diffuser, you should breathe in through your mouth and out through your nose. There is no need to inhale. Please consult this page to better understand how to use our personal diffuser properly: MONQ.com/Breathe
Each pod lasts close to as long as an entire original MONQ diffuser! If you buy a flip-case you get 3 pods each with nearly 200 breaths (600 breaths total).
A fully charged diffuser battery will last a week. Additionally, the powerpack is designed to also keep the battery fully charged for an optimal draw with every breath.
Our Blend PODS can be purchased individually, so you can easily try each blend, mix and match, and share them with friends!
Simply put the MONQ R diffuser into the case, and the MONQ R case will charge the diffuser for you!

MONQ blends should be drawn in through the mouth, also known as a ‘mouth inhale’, and then exhaled through the nose. Think of the action being similar to sucking something through a straw. In order to inhale into the mouth, and not into the lungs, you must use your mouth, tongue, and pharynx to draw from the device, then exhale through the nose. While keeping your mouth closed after taking a breath, simply exhale through your nose. MONQ blends are safe to inhale into the lungs, but there is data that suggests that the terpenes, the active compounds are less effective when absorbed in the lungs.
The longevity of each personal diffuser depends on usage. Most people get around 200 breaths from each device, which is close to 1 month of continued use. Most users are satisfied taking 2-3 breaths every few hours due to the robust and complex flavors within our 13 blends. They end up requiring fewer, softer breaths than they might have initially anticipated, and since there is no need to inhale, the device generally lasts a long time. Users who are particularly empathic or sensitive to external stimuli (including aromatherapy) often like to soften the impact of each breath, by inserting their fingertip as a spacer between their mouth and the device. Not surprisingly, these users find their personal diffuser lasts far longer, sometimes more than 300 breaths.
We are often asked if MONQ is an e-cigarette or a vaporizor. MONQ personal essential oil diffusers use vaporizer technology to deliver all-natural essential oil blends in classic aromatherapy combinations. Our diffusers are available in 14 different blends, all of which are free of nicotine and tobacco, GMOs, and artificial ingredients, and are 100% organic and vegan. Breathe our MONQ blends into your mouth, pause, and exhale through your nose. Plant fragrances pass through your olfactory system inspiring relaxation or other effects, depending on the blend.
We do ask that those planning to use MONQ are over the age of 18. Any users with asthma or similar pulmonary conditions, as well as pregnant or nursing women, should not use MONQ. Some of our blends contain certain essential oils the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy recommends avoiding while pregnant or breastfeeding, thus we advise new or expectant mothers against using MONQ.

People often ask “what does the word MONQ® mean?”
MONQ is an acronym that stands for Modified Observation of Natural Qualia. Let me start with Qualia. Qualia is a poorly understood word. It stands for how you and I experience the world. The redness of a strawberry, the sweetness of vanilla, or feeling nervous, feeling stressed, as opposed to feeling calm. So we believe that with the use of MONQ you can change how you interact with the world.
For instance, we believe we can lower your level of stress by using MONQ and can, in general, change the way you feel about and the way you experience things in your daily life.
That is why we say with MONQ you can Improve Your Qualia of Life™.
Our bottled blends are not intended to refill your personal MONQ diffuser, nor any other similar device. They are not intended for, and should not be used in any e-cigarette or vape mod. These essential oils are not eJuice! They are intended to be added to your favorite water-based diffuser or aromatherapy necklace, for instance! Simply add 2-3 drops of your preferred bottled blend to a water-based room diffuser (for best results, use a room diffuser with a built-in timer to avoid decreased effect from sensory adaptation). For a sustainable option, try MONQ R, a rechargeable portable aromatherapy diffuser that gives you the ability to switch out different Blend PODs (personal oil diffusers) while still using the same rechargeable diffuser battery, creating less waste. Additionally, we offer a great recycling program.
There are several different ways that you can use our bottled blends!
1. Simply inhale! Open the bottle and hold it near your nose and inhale.
2. Use an electric diffuser: put a few drops in a water-based diffuser. Do note that because of the phenomenon of sensory adaptation, we do not recommend using a desktop diffuser for prolonged periods of time.
3. Aromatherapy jewelry: Place a couple drops into your favorite essential oil passive diffuser, such as an aromatherapy necklace.
Our bottled blends are meant to be used aromatically. Please do not, under any circumstance, ingest our bottled essential oil blends. They are never to be placed in the mouth, inside the nose, or on the skin.
Simply place 2-3 drops into your favorite passive diffuser. We like this method of use best because it is fully consistent with the concepts of sensory adaptation. We encourage you to bring the necklace up to your nose, every hour or so, taking a nice breath while enjoying the aroma.
